We ate, we met, we celebrated

Jacqueline Huddleston, Designated Chef, explains the wonderful main courses she prepared. Mmm, mole poblano.

On Tuesday May 5, 2015, the members of Skookum Food Provisioners’ Cooperative got together for our Annual General Meeting. As we usually do, we celebrated with food and socializing before the business part of the evening. Former director Jacqueline Huddleston prepared a wonderful chicken mole poblano, vegan-friendly enchiladas, and a make-you-own-taco bar. As well, members of the board of directors prepared some sides and salads, so there was quite a spread of delicious Mexican-themed food to go with the date (Cinco de Mayo).

After eating and socializing, the Annual General Meeting took place, at which members heard about Skookum’s finances and a summary of activities during the past year. You can read all about what happened last year in the Report from the Directors (PDF).

After reviewing the activities of the past year, the membership present acclaimed four new directors to serve on the board alongside Dan Glover & Edward Sanderson.

Jill Amatt, Deanna Parsley, Vanessa Sparrow, & Barbara Trottier all stepped forward, and since there weren’t more candidates than open positions on the board of directors, these four members were acclaimed and will henceforth be serving on the board.

Jill will take over as Treasurer; Deanna will serve as Secretary; Vanessa will work with Dan Glover on our year-round events calendar; and Barbara will be the board’s liaison to the Skookum Gleaners project.

Please join us in thanking outgoing directors Laura Berezan, Chris Matheson, David Parkinson, & Pete Tebbutt for their service; and in welcoming these four new directors.
